The purpose of this overview document is to give you a highlight of the core features that are included in this release along with additional improvements and fixes that were also made.
HIGHLIGHTS OF NEW FEATURES
ABILITY TO ADD LOCAL PICKUP OPTION (AND ADDITIONAL PAYMENT ON DELIVERY OPTIONS)
We’ve developed additional local payment options for stores to provide more delivery and pickup options.
In MAIN STORE SETTINGS > INTEGRATIONS > PAYMENT MERCHANT DROPDOWNS we have removed ‘cash on delivery’ and add two new options: ‘Payment on Delivery’ & ‘Payment on Pickup’. Once selected, the Payment on Delivery section allows for the store owner to choose one:
cash on delivery
bank card on delivery
cash & bank card on delivery
Once selected, the Payment on Pickup section allows for the store owner to choose one:
cash on pickup
bank card on pickup
cash & bank card on pickup
Only one choice from each can be selected and the store owner can still only have up to 3 payment merchant accounts.
The store owner can have both cash on delivery and cash on pickup as options (for example, that would be 2 payment options). There can just be only one selection made from each section (1 from pickup, 1 from delivery)
Please note, it is possible to create multiple pick up locations, but stores can only have one pickup location per order.
Now when users are creating (OR editing!) their shipping zones, within the shipping cost type of ‘Flat Fee’, we have added an additional option within the pre-configured services called ‘Local pickup’ (so now there's standard, premium, expedited AND local pickup options per shipping zone). Users can pre-configure all 4 options and have those present for customers if they wish.
If this option is selected, there is:
a free entry text field for Pickup Address:
a free entry text field for Pickup Phone Number:
Estimated Pickup Ready Range:
Min days is the number of days from when the order is placed that it will be ready
Max days is the number of days from when the order is placed that the store will no longer hold the order (expires)
Handling Costs (optional):
From the frontend for customers, if pickup is selected, the pickup location address is shown before the user completes their order. As customers go through the steps, they are presented with the min/max days for when an order is ready for pickup along with additional location information like address and phone number on the Thank You page.
